    Default North Bend Lake

    Any one have experience fishing NB? It's just choked full with timber around the part I put in and being 16 don't really have the money to get a fish finder. Just wondering what kind of tactics are used there; thanks a lot!

    I fish north bend often,I grew up within 4 miles of the park,and hunted much of the land now flooded by the lake.I do well fishing for crappie,many flooded trees make the fishing good.

    I visisted the park a feww years ago on vacation. I only fished from shore but it sure looked like a great lake. I want to go back again after I retire.

    It is a great place to fish,though not really a lake.It is fed by one of the Hughes rivers,with several miles of fishable stream.I deer hunted many miles of the river,before it was damed,forming the " Lake".Due to many,many flooded trees and sunken logs,I would suggest anyone bringing a boat and motor,to also bring an extra prop.I lost a prop the very first time on the lake,but now If I use a motor I also keep a wary eye out for prop knockers.
    If you like fishing for crappie and gills,this lake does offer both in an abundance.I fish form a nucanoe exclusively,and see several kayakers,but most fish from johnboats on up to bass boats ( 10 hrs motor limit).live bait is allowed( it is a damed river) so many folks use minnows.
